MASON CITY – NIT has learned that a list was created before tonight’s city council meeting which allows certain people special treatment.

As Tuesday’s heated city council meeting dealing with the controversial Prestage slaughterhouse got underway at 7 PM, the west door to the Mason City Room was locked. Anyone who wanted to gain entry was told to wait in an “overflow area” in the library commons. This was done to control the number of people in the Mason City Room, which has a capacity of 190, the city’s fire marshall said. Only when people left the meeting would others be allowed to enter the room.

However, Chamber of Commerce Director Robin Anderson was witnessed walking from the parking lot up to the locked west doors and she was immediately let inside – even as the “overflow area” had several dozen people waiting.

A police officer at the door approached and opened the door and was asked if the door was to remain locked. He told NIT that it was to remain locked. When asked why Robin Anderson had gained entry, he said she was on a “pre-approved list from the city” that get to enter, no questions asked.

There was no immediate word on how the list was created or who else is on the list.  Anderson, speaking for the entire Chamber of Commerce, has strongly backed the Prestage slaughter plant.
